The coast is famous for it’s fishing industry, specifically the abundance and high quality of lobster found there. Fishermen, or Maine workers in general, spend their lives working hard to provide for their families and truly take pride in what they do. In another poem, “Maine”, Leo Connellan speaks of Maine’s staples. Cold winters, hot summers, potatoes, seafood, blackberries are a prime example. He also speaks of Maine not being able to provide for its
However there was one thing that could stop him. Louie had been drafted to the air force, where his real journey begins. He found himself trapped in the ocean with two other crew members that survived. Although the chances of him finding his way home were slim to none, Louie’s family seems to believe in him, especially Pete as he says: “‘If he has a toothbrush and a pocket knife and he hits land, he’ll make it.’” (145) Pete knew Louie wouldn’t give up, and would work with what he has. Louie’s determination and hope continues to push on as he is stuck on the raft with his other two crewmembers.

The men try to navigate the giant ocean waves in a ten-foot skiff on the open ocean. The four men on the ship all have different strengths. “The cook bails out the boat while the oiler and correspondent take turns rowing the boat, and the injured captain lies in the bow spouting cynical remarks and brushing away the seagulls, but also provides much needed leadership” (Bouchard 1). This quote accurately shows how the men use their strengths to their advantage so they can come together to achieve their goals. In order to survive on the life boat, it is essential for the men to work together as a team.
In the novel The Old Man and the Sea the way that nature is used is that it does not fight against the old man but it instead is used in the way that it shows man relationship with nature, by showing that even while he was out in the sea far from land he was still given nutrients to eat, like dolphin and shrimp. Santiago also loves the marlin as if he was a brother to him, in the novel the old man says that" Come on and kill me. I do not care who kills who." When Santiago says this it shows the admiration for the marlin and shows the fundamental law that unites man and nature. The way that most people can relate to this is that people who have pets tend to treat them as either
The character that shows the most courage is the old, Santiago this can be seen. (68) The old man, Santiago has fear that the sharks might come and eat the fish that he caught, he said If sharks come, God pity him and me. The old man thinks he might have a bone spur, he said if the great DiMaggio had a bone spur and so simple an old man can do it. The other character that displaces courage is the young boy, Manolin he shows this trait. When, the
Throughout the story, the oiler was one of the most industrious characters and most optimistic about life. This is evident when the author writes, “The oiler plied the oars until his head drooped forward and the overpowering sleep blinded him; and he rowed yet afterward” (116). The poor oiler who has been rowing all night is so exhausted that he falls asleep, yet somehow, he still manages to keep on rowing. This sets the oiler apart in the story as none of the other characters works as hard as he does. The oiler is also the only character who never says, “’If I am going to be drowned—if I am going to be drowned—If I am going to be drowned, why, in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and contemplate sand and trees?
Santiago does the typical Hemingway Code Hero action, which is to take action, and move on with your life, to not be over-emotional about such affairs. Next, it is showed that Santiago has gone Salao, the worst and rarest form of being unlucky. Santiago has not caught a fish for eighty-four days and has not made any money. He has been living off old rice and beans, while using the newspaper as a pillow. Impoverished, he does not seem to be affected, instead, he does the opposite of what would be expected, and tries the hardest he ever has in order to catch a fish.
Abstract: Ernest Hemingway’s protagonists share some specific qualities that define them as ‘code heroes’. The code by which the protagonists live is related to dignity, courage, endurance, self-control, and grace under pressure. The protagonists of Hemingway, in the course of their steady evolution, overcome the harsh realities of life with their code. In the novel, To Have and Have Not, Hemingway presents the protagonist, Harry Morgan’s, struggle for existence during the period of economic Depression in 1930s. He is an exceptional fisherman who owns a boat and occasionally arranges fishing trips for tourists to make some quick money.
The film won numerous awards including the Oscar for the best animated short film. The novella is about an old and experienced fisherman, Santiago, who has a boy, Manolin, as a companion. After 84 days without a catch, the old man goes deeper into the water and hooks an enormous marlin. There is a long battle between the old man and the marlin, which the old man eventually wins, but then loses the marlin to sharks when rowing it back to land. Although Petrov’s film omitted many aspects of the novella to fit it into a short film, he still captured the essence of the novella and then used artistic creativity to further it; he specifically succeeded in capturing man’s interconnectedness to nature and the relationship between the old man and the boy.
